  • Description:
    Some kinds of chemical accidents or attacks may make going outdoors dangerous. Leaving the area might take too long or put you in harm’s way. In such a case it may be safer for you to stay indoors than to go outside.

    “Shelter in place” means to make a shelter out of the place you are in. It is a way for you to make the building as safe as possible to protect yourself until help arrives. You should not try to shelter in a vehicle unless you have no other choice. Vehicles are not airtight enough to give you adequate protection from chemicals.

    Every emergency is different and during any emergency people may have to evacuate (http://www.bt.cdc.gov/planning/evacuationfacts.asp) or to shelter in place depending on where they live.
